I accept responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my equipment. I will participate wearing a helmet which satisfies the requirements of the RELEASEES Rules or Regulations and or Oregon State Law and that can protect against serious head injury and assume all responsibility and liability for the selection of such a helmet.
